"Mawaru Penguindrum" ep. 17

Even the possessed enjoy takoyaki.
All right already with the champagne.
This was more of setup episode than a standalone one like the last two.  A few highlights:
Finding out Keiju and Yuri were in cahoots the whole time to resurrect Momoka.  More disturbing Kanba/Himari relationship implications.  Keiju drinking out of two different glasses of champagne.  (The significance of that escapes me, but there were too many close ups of the glasses and champagne bottle for that to be insignificant.) Spaghetti western music playing when Masako and Yuri were dueling.  Keiju taking an active and sinister role in the show.  (Where is his psychological-hang-up/childhood flashback episode?)  Penguins vs. squid.  The creepy end card with Keiju and ... Momoka?
